This was a very well researched and written summary of the lives of some odd/brilliant scientists. I knew about all of them but learnt many things about each that I didn't know before.

Highly recommended.

I think that this book shows a great insight onto the scientist that have shaped our world into what it is today. It includes people from all over time, some you might have heard multiple time. This book tells scientist that might not have been seen as the most orthodox people of their time. However what they have accomplish makes them the way legacy tells of them today. Some of the scientist in this book might be less fame and yet there are famed scientist in the book like Albert Einstein.

I always love learning more about my beloved science predecessors! This book has stories of scientists that are well-known and some that I have heard only the names of. This book was a neat idea and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I haven't read it yet, but I met and talked with the author at the convention "Arisia".

This is my favorite introduction to biographies of both well and not that well known important contributors to science and technology.
